Outreach wins contracts to supply seven pipehandlers

Hydraulic equipment supplier Outreach has been awarded contracts totalling almost £4m for the supply of seven pipehandlers to various platforms in the North Sea and the Middle East.

Among the new contracts are an order for four Outreach pipehandlers from Apache North Sea for the Forties oil platforms, Alpha, Bravo, Charlie and Delta.

All seven of the Palfinger PKM700T knuckle boom systems will be manufactured, delivered and commissioned in the coming months.

Featuring a 21m boom and a lifting capacity of 3.5 tonnes, the PKM700T is used to transfer pipe from the pipe deck directly to the V-door, catwalk or conveyor and back.
